Moonshadow’s DB4IoT is a time-series database engine to power innovations in transportation and the “Internet of Moving Things”

Visualize and analyze time-series IoT data with blazing-fast interactive maps for the Internet of Moving Things.

DB4IoT can track and display the time-series GPS location, CAD/AVL and other sensor data from tens of thousands of moving objects simultaneously over interactive maps. Track, monitor and analyze both real-time and historical insights from data collected from moving objects – cars, trucks, buses, trains, shipments, people and more. See our Internet of Moving Things interactive map demo.

DB4IoT has the potential to transform operations and optimizations for public transit agencies, inform short and long term transportation planning and engineering efforts and unleash the potential of connected vehicle data. DB4IoT can track and display the GPS location, vehicle health, diagnostic, and other sensor data, from tens of thousands of moving objects simultaneously over interactive maps. This provides the ability to track, monitor, and analyze data collected from moving objects – cars, trucks, buses, trains, shipments, people, and more. Visualize data over maps in real time and play back historical data animations with analytics and dashboards.


Location-enabled data sets combined with powerful geospatial visualizations are defining the next wave in big data analysis

Geospatial visualization delivers fresh insights by allowing users to easily recognize key spatial relationships and correlations within large data sets. Visualizing those relationships provides a useful way of organizing big data and a more intuitive path to understanding what’s happening among the columns, rows and cells in the database.

Geospatial visualization unleashes the human brain’s remarkable abilities to process visual information and detect patterns and complex relationships buried within huge volumes of data. It unlocks fresh perspectives and insights that might otherwise remain hidden. As an essential part of business intelligence, data mapping and geospatial visualization of big data allows you to see concepts and results in more interesting and useful ways to make faster and better-informed strategic, managerial and operational decisions. Seeing is believing.

Whether you are dealing with real-time data, time-series data or static data, Moonshadow’s cutting-edge, patented database engines and geospatial visualization capabilities provide state-of-the-art solutions. We shrink the database footprint, deliver blazing-fast data access speeds and require fewer server resources to deliver immediate ROI for our clients.

Revolutionary geospatial visualization solutions powered
by Moonshadow’s patented Ephemeris database engine

Moonshadow works with large databases, from hundreds of thousands to billions of records. We visualize “big data” over interactive maps. Our intuitive user interfaces are built around familiar online maps environments, so it only takes minutes – not hours or days – to get up to speed. We make it easier to navigate, search and visualize data in practical ways on desktop, laptop and mobile platforms. All you need is a web browser and fast Internet connection. There is no need to download or install software.

Visualize and analyze your big data faster over interactive maps

Byte-size Your Data

We’ve broken the one byte per value barrier. We shrink your database footprint to less than one byte per value for virtually any data type – text, Booleans, INT, SMALLINT, decimal, numeric etc.

Faster is Better

DB4IoT can execute queries on databases with hundreds of millions of records in 100—200 milliseconds. DB4IoT can map tens of thousands of moving objects multiple times per second.

In-Memory NoSQL

By storing up to 10 times as much data in memory Moonshadow’s Ephemeris and DB4IoT technologies require up to 90% fewer servers, lowering ongoing costs when compared to traditional solutions.
